C. Brewer acquires injection molding facility

C. Brewer Company, a custom injection molder and mold manufacturer specializing in medical and technology applications for a variety of OEMs, announced this week that it has acquired the injection molding facility of San Diego, CA-based CareFusion, a medical device company. The molding facility operates in 30,000 ft2 in Ontario, CA, and has 15 presses. The facility was previously operated by Medegen Inc. until that company's purchase by CareFusion.
 
The stand-alone building is ISO 13485 certified with Class 8 clean room that Brewer says accommodates custom product assembly, molding, and special handling of parts sensitive to bioburden. According to CEO Charles A. (Chuck) Brewer III, 24/7 operations will start by March 1. Brewer, in an interview at PLASTEC West/MD&M in Anaheim this week, also projects that the facility will hire about 50 employees this year as the site ramps up to full production capabilities.
 
"This asset acquisition further strengthens C. Brewer's commitment as a preferred source of high-quality, reliable plastic molded parts to medical device OEMs who require contract assembly services and solutions for their products," said Brewer.
 
With the addition of the Ontario molding operations, C. Brewer now has a total of 75 injection molding presses in a company-wide total of 135,000 ft2 of manufacturing space.
 
"Our intention is to exceed our unique customer expectations—our new Ontario facility shows how we're committed to growing with our customers and our intention to meet their future needs," Brewer said. —Clare Goldsberry
